Who wants to be inside when you can be out in nature? Especially on a sunny day in Calgary, the last thing you want to be is cooped up indoors.
Our in-home care providers at Qualicare Calgary want you to know you don’t have to be. Even if you have limited mobility, you can still get outside and enjoy the fresh air with loved ones!
What Motivates You to Get Outside?
There are number of things that can keep you from wanting to go outdoors, such as an increased risk of falling, rising temperatures and mobility issues. However, you need to remind yourself that there is more good outdoors than bad, especially when it comes to your health.
The healthy benefits of being outside includes:
- Easing anxiety
- Getting much-needed vitamin D
- Improving physical health
- Fighting depression
- Reducing stress
With several health benefits awaiting you outside, what are you waiting for?! Here are some thoughts on getting outside:
First, you can visit a library like the Calgary Public Libraryto get out of the house and expand your mind. From sitting in your preferred nook at the library with your favorite book to partaking in the various classes and events, there will never be a dull moment. Grab a book and take it outdoors for an even better excursion!
Second, the Calgary Zoois another great place to visit when looking for various outdoor activities to partake in this summer. From a panda breakfast to an adult night and everything in between, a day out with the animals can be a great opportunity to get in touch with nature and enjoy being outside.
Finally, going outdoors doesn’t have to be chaotic. Even simple outdoor activities like going for a picnic in the park or spending quality time with a loved one walking the family pet can be a great outdoor activity for you and the entire family.
